The media cycle on the issue is getting a bit slow, as happens sometimes. I try not to do too much in the way of filler on this blog, so if I don’t have stories to comment on, I just don’t have as many posts. But I think I may have some news links to share. Sometimes I don’t know until I go through the tabs and see:
General Gun News:
17 year old girl beats an incumbent State Delegate in West Virginia. She ran on the Second Amendment.
Also from Bob Owens: “The Long, Slow Death Of The Gun Control Cult”
How about that: it turns out gun trafficking is illegal after all. What the gun control folks and the feds want to do is make it a strict liability felony, with no mens rea requirement.
What exactly is GDSI up to? Looks like trying to buy some pro-gun street creds. I believe they are very dangerous.
Why does the USDA need a SWAT team? Mad cows! Mad cows!
Tam: Logic is Dead.
SAF wins a victory in Arkansas, getting their law denying legal residents thrown out as unconstitutional. Non-citizens have Second Amendment rights too.
Josh Prince has more to say about Kathy Kane’s recent action on Utah reciprocity. He’s looking to run a case, but needs funding.
Idiocy in the Media:
What the Bergen Record doesn’t want to accept is that New Jersey has forever ruined any chance at smart guns coming to market.Â New Jersey can repeal their law, but we’re not stupid enough to believe they won’t just pass another mandate when they feel the timing is right. Smart gun technology therefore is to be continually opposed.
Idiocy With Guns:
There’s a difference between a flak jacket and modern Kevlar body armor, and I still wouldn’t test either by having someone shoot me.
Those Silly Anti-Gunners:
She can keep quoting Gandhi, but personally, I’m still in the “laughing at you” stage.
As far as I’m concerned, without a police report, I don’t believe it happened. I know there is ugliness on our side of the issue, just like on their side of the issue. We should speak out against that. But if someone spits on you, you should call the cops over. They’re also ignoring the good number of women who show up who get nasty, because that would interfere with the War on Women narrative, wouldn’t it?
